Why just talk with stakeholders about environmental management (or any other subject)? Let them experience it!
Conducted entirely in the virtual world Second Life, this one-day conference will provide you with the opportunity to experience and learn about the possibilities of hosting stakeholder learning events using virtual reality.
Youâ€™ll participate in presentations (including a virtual deliberation held in Second Life), discussions . . . even â€œfield tripsâ€ that demonstrate how virtual reality is being used for stakeholder learning today.
What Youâ€™ll Learn:
â–º The benefits and drawbacks of working with stakeholders in Second Life, including when itâ€™s appropriate, efficient and effectiveâ€”and when itâ€™s not
â–º How Second Life differs from other technologies used for stakeholder engagement
â–º How Second Life can be used for a range of subject areas, includingâ€”but not limited toâ€”environmental management
â–º Tips for using Second Life effectively, including how to access existing â€œislandsâ€ or spaces within Second Lifeâ€™s virtual world and how to create your own space
